Daily Goods Food Photography

And here’s a little behind the scenes with my new Sony A9. I finally completely switched to Sony completely with two Sony A9 cameras and a bunch of new lenses. Everything performs so well! (Except maybe the Profoto Air Remote is a bit delicate)

Great Performances at Cooper Hewitt Design Museum

Here is some food photography I did for Great Performances at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum's Summer Garden Party. I love working as the photographer for museums in New York City, so it was nice when those two worlds collide and I got to attend a party at the Cooper Hewitt but could focus on documenting the food and the general atmosphere. There was a super cool cotton candy vendor there, handing out sparkly Rose flavored candy.

City Island Restaurant Food Photography

Nothing better than spending the afternoon in a new restaurant photographing their food. We photographed a lot more dishes than originally planned, it was an onslaught of seafood, surf and turf and the most amazing looking roast pork with crispy skin or crackling. I love working as a food photographer and would love to create more content like this for other restaurants in New York City or the Hudson Valley.

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture Sheep Shearing Festival

Stone Barns annual sheep shearing festival is one of my favorite events every year to photograph. It marks the beginning of spring and summer with better weather and more outdoor food events.

Bluestone Lane Coffee in Hoboken

There seems to be no stopping Bluestone Lane who are constantly opening beautiful coffee shops in great neighborhoods, this time they move to New Jersey where I was able to photograph the impeccably designed new coffee shop.

Food Photography - NYBG Kids Culinary Weekend

It's always a pleasure to work at the New York Botanical Gardens, but especially when I'm asked to cover some of the amazing kids programs that include the edible garden and some great chefs. Check out Two Moms Kitchen for more recipe ideas and make sure you visit Matt Abdoo's new place in the Village, Pig Bleecker and Brooklyn joint Pig Beach.
